ínstructíons

  1. Fíll a large pot wíth water and 1 tbsp of salt and boíl your pasta accordíng to the package dírectíons. 
  2. Whíle the pasta ís cookíng, slíce your tomatoes ínto 1/4 ínch slíces and cut your mozzarella ínto 1/2 ínch cubes. These sízes are just my preference so íf you líke them smaller or bígger, go for ít! 
  3. Once your pasta ís done, draín ít and rínse ít wíth cold water. You do NOT want your mozzarella to get melty.
